It's The Most Stylish Suv. — Compared to my other car this has power to spare. It handles well and exudes a felling of luxury both inside and out. That being said the price for said luxury is expensive. It's also not that common a car so to find one that was in my price range that met my criteria was not so easy. I shopped for two months before I found the car I wanted.

Pros: Power and handling

Cons: Expensive

Best Suv I Ever Owned — Whether taking a cross country trip, or heading up the mountains to fish for the afternoon, or getting dressed up for the theatre--this car feels comfortable just about anywhere. The quality of the materials and their fit and finish, means that keeping it clean and tight is just a matter discipline. I recently drove a new Cayenne Diesel--and really, I think I liked the way mine felt better.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Powerful, very dependable, drivable. Miles and miles of smiles. Fabulous in the snow, ice, whatever nature throws at you. Precision durable design, and after 8 years, still turns head.

Cons: Expensive to fix. Easy to break the speed limit

Cayenne S Titanium Edition 2006 — I elaborated about my Cayenne in the "about me" section. I would recommend looking into fuel and maintenance costs before purchasing a Porsche Cayenne - unless money is no object (not my situation). It is really fun to drive and very powerful. I am in my 50's but teenage boys like to rev their engines when they're next to me at a stoplight/sign but there's no comparison when it comes to acceleration. I feel badly for them!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive, lots of power, spacious and comfortable, great for a large dog in back, great overall appearance and feels safe.

Cons: The maintenance is excruciating in terms of draining my bank account. And the mileage makes it painful to go to the pump. Coolant leak problem (currently a pending class action suit for my make and year) and continual "check dipped beam" issue that has been ongoing as long as I've owned the car. Paid over $900 for a new battery installation and a bulb replacement.

Porsche Cayenne S — Great car for everyday use. Whether driving it to work during the week or taking it skiing, during the winter or sailing during the summer it has the performance and versatility to do it all and do it in style.

Pros: Great car for everyday use

Cons: fuel economy is what you would expect for high performance

Don't Knock It Before Trying It! — The best car ever...if you can cope with 12MPG and the maintenance cost!!! Finish is superb inside / out, incredible handling for this size of car. Engine is so strong, 0 to 60 in less than 5 sec! This said, a few minor issues: Sat Nav very poor for the year model and the price tag when new. Telephone interface lacks bluetooth.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Best car ever owned!
To buy 2nd hand once somebody else got hit by £70,000 depreciation...

Cons: Fuel economy!

Impressions — Everything from the interior trim, handling, speed power, exterior, and sound system. Car is super heavy with side and front air bags. Downside is the cost on the maintenance, parts, and gas. Very poor MPG; however it is averaging approximately 16-18 on the highway depending on traffic.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks, power, interior

Cons: Poor MPG

Looks And Drives Great.....but — I would not have this car for an everyday driver. Weekend or occasional use is great. Dealer parts and labor is a joke. $300 for an oil change? $1000 for front brakes. If you can work on it yourself, which I can, that helps. But when you don't have time or can't do it, you better be ready to get shafted. Towson and Len Stoler both are bad and expensive. However I did put 45K miles on the car and it never left me sitting anywhere or caused any major headaches. Just coming from BMW coverage for years, the maintenance bills where a big surprise!

Pros: Looks great, AWD works great, Power is there when you need it.

Cons: EXPESNIVE maintenance.  Being used to BMW Coverage - ALMOST nothing on this car was covered by the dealer, even in the first 3 years and 36K miles.

Fun Vehicle — These trucks are a real bargain now. You can find low mileage examples for 1/3rd the cost new, with CPO warranty. Fuel mileage isn't great (average 16 MPG, 14 MPG around town, 20 MPG highway), but in return you have a great driving experience. Appearance is great - most people have no idea that this vehicle was bought used - and think of it as a $90,000 vehicle. Comfortable to drive, with lots of performance - makes for a great trip vehicle.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nothing this big should drive this well or be this fast

Cons: Fuel mileage, repair costs
